Motorsport Sunday was a great success....

07th July 2014

'Motorsport Sunday 2014' was a great success, we must hope it becomes an annual event.

The St Peter Port seafront and Salerie car-park were closed for the day to allow the many Guernsey Motorsport, Car, Bike, Historic Vehicle and Model Car Clubs to showcase themselves.

The three Emergency Services also put on an impressive showcase of their vehicles and kit.

After a wet start to the day the sun came out and so did the crowds making this new event a great success.

I'm sure many of the visitors to Motorsport Sunday would have been suprised how much racing machinery is owned and raced by local enthusiasts... and what was on show was just a tiny proportion of the whole lot!

It was great to see the many different Clubs come together to promote the scene as a whole. The usual thing is for the Clubs to operate on their own. Fostering a community spirit must be good for everyone involved.

Let's hope this first effort will grow over the next few years...
